Tech News Today 3: Get A ShamWow And A Clue

by TWiT

Published June 3, 2010


How quantum computing doesn't work, why Zuckerburg sweats, whether HP knows what a smartphone is, and more.

Facebook's Mark Zuckerburg sweated his way into trouble at D8, but he didn't get nearly the hate that AT&T did for threatening legal action over sending email to their CEO.

Guests: Jon Strickland, senior writer of howstuffworks.com and host of TechStuff podcast.
